Faces catchup

This are the faces I haven't posted yet, for whatever reason (mostly laziness).




Face up rules are changing so now, if you want to book a slot, you have to pay for it. If you don't, you will be at the back of the queue. It's not just because people are booking slots they are not paying for, but I'm just generally busier, and it's not fair on anyone to say they are sending a head when they aren't. I've discovered people are far more efficient at sending heads if they've paid so those are the new rules.  

Spring

I take the same photo every year. Every spring and every autumn I point my camera upwards. Every spring I feel the urge to do this. This is a ritual, an offering.

I see white where there was once bare black like a rush of blood, like the first gasp of air. I point my camera and it comes out white and I wait and... Perhaps it will never come? from the fog of bare white slowly emerges Blue.


Pale and bleached. Then the branches. Slowly, the springtime gathers momentum. Spring always comes.


 The infinite smoke of endless blossom floats into the blue of the sky.

There's only a month to go!

Show someone you love them with handprinted cards. Preferably one made by me. New alchemical love potion plus a couple of old favorites.

60 minute Update

My family got notice that their shaker peg rails are going to be featured on 60 minute makeover on the 28th, I think it's on at 2 on ITV. I was supposed to take a picture with my stuff on it so it could steal some of thier glory, but it turns out I'm really bad a glory theft. Still, the corner of fun there looks nice, doesn't it? I have too stools now along with the peg rail.

Pop over to the Country Shaker website to look at the exciting 60 minute logo, as well as see if you can see which photos I took (it's fairly obvious).

Hurrah! A new listing!!



No illustration friday from me, I'm afraid (even though the theme is awesome) but I have manage to get my new A4 screenprint listed in my shop here. It's taken a week but then it can take me months and I have got a pretty good reason- I've been super busy setting up my new shopfront at Not On The Highstreet. How exciting is that?

I'll probably post more about that later though because I'm super tired now. It's hard work!
